What did his line look like?

Seemed to show some flashes. The curve got called for a couple strike 3's in a row there. Some quick outs here and there. The first run didn't seem to be a huge deal. Just seemed to lose a little bit and got rang up for a HR, double and then it kinda came apart.

Overall, not a bad showing, I think he held his own. Command still isn't quite there, but the curve's thrown for strike 3's are encouraging.

Just by reading your updates you get the sense he pitched better than his line indicates. I did't come away impressed, but a bit encouraged he seemed to hold his own a bit. Thats big strides for him given his year last year.

Dayton's defense is killing them now, 3 errors in the 7th and 5 unearned runs in the inning. Dragons trail 10-0.

Awesome. Must run in this organization.

BTW, Cabrera and McKennon both have errors in the game. McKennon has his 4th Error which would project to 20 for a full 162 game schedule as a 1st basemen. Cabrera had his 6th error which would make him Felipe Lopez of the Dayton in only his 17th game. Let's just hope there's some improvement in those areas.

ON a positive note, Logan Parker seems to be doing quite well. Even when there are days when Dayton doesn't hit well, he seems to be one of the few that gets hits. I think he's already had 3 HR's since he's been recently called up.

All of Logan's HR and RBI have come against Great Lakes. I find that kind of funny.

I hope the Reds call up Parker soon. You could say that I'm not a fan of Louwsma's at all. (It's nothing personal--I just think he's about as much of a non-prospect as one can be.)

Thompson is supposed to be pitching for the Lookouts tonight but I'm not sure when the game starts.

Turner had an RBI double to score Shaun Cumberland who reached base with a triple.

Ryan Hanigan with a 2 Run HR. 7-3 Bats.

Hanigan with a .345 BA and .840 OPS. Bako is in a slump and the other two guys stink. Time to add Hanigan to the watch list IMO.

That was Hanigan's first on the year. He has had a very nice start to the season

7 - 7 in the 7th with Indy vs the Bats.

Shearn gets in Trouble and the disappointing Tyler Pelland allows 2 hits w/o getting an out. Todd Coffey comes in and Walks one to load the bases followed by a 3 run double.

Coffey continues his descent to oblivion by allowing a Craig Wilson HR to lead-off the 8th.

I think he's ready to be challenged. Promote him to Louisville after the draft. If nothing else, maybe he'll push Bailey.

You got the lines mixed up.

I'd like to see one more High-K, low-BB performance from him before a promotion.

I just cut and pasted from the in-game boxscore at MILB.com which seemed to match their play by play summary. Must have had a goof somewhere.

IMO, that promotion would be way too soon. You've got to allow the league a chance to catch up to Thompson. All we know is the SL had a bear of a time with him for six weeks. What we don't know if that's a true reflection of his quality or just the result of a short snapshot in time (it's almost always the latter, even for stud pitchers). My guess is SL lineups will start giving him trouble from here on out and Thompson stands to gain a lot from the experience.

Mind you, standard operating procedure is to promote the kid before a circuit gets to challenge him and I expect that's what the Reds will do. I just don't think standard operating procedure is based in anything close to sensibility.
